|The Political Economy of Development||Speaker: Professor Tim Besley
Chair: Robin Burgess This event was recorded on 23 September 2009 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building It is widely recognised that the interplay of political and economic forces has a major bearing on the path of development. How do the developments in the recent political economy literature bear on the practical problems that some countries face in achieving sustainable development paths? Tim Besley is Professor of Economics and Political Science at the London School of Economics, and served on the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee from September 2006 until August 2009.

|Supplement A||Public Lecture - Diaspora Bonds: Partnering with the diaspora for investment and economic growth - Supplement Lecture by Dr. Dilip Ratha||
Dr. Ratha’s lecture will focus on the flexible mechanism that diaspora bonds have provided governments to support national budgets and fill funding gaps in development programmes, including the provision of quality education. He will then explore the potential of use of this mechanism in the Jamaica context with the possibility of targeted investments in the areas of Human Resources (e.g. training of doctors, nurses and teachers for the US and UK markets) and Infrastructure Development (e.g. medical tourism; Information and Communication Technology; revitalization of Downtown Kingston).

Economist Paul Romer unveils a bold idea: "charter cities," city-scale administrative zones governed by a coalition of nations. (Could Guantánamo Bay become the next Hong Kong?)
Paul Romer is developing a radical new model of growth and governance, which calls for the establishment of city-scale special administrative zones.
|Supplement D||The world's first charter city ?||Back in 2009, Paul Romer unveiled the idea for a "charter city" -- a new kind of city with rules that favor democracy and trade.

|Supplement G||Where Next for Migration and Development? Ronald Skeldon||This presentation will look at past thinking about migration and development and bring the debate up-to-date with current political and theoretical positions. The idea that migration can be managed will be critically assessed and remittances and brain-drain issues discussed. The role of the Global Forum for Migration and Development in the current debate will be examined and speculations made on its future. The second part of the presentation will focus on possible migration futures, the factors most likely to influence them and how the international community can best respond. The presentation will argue that a development rather than a migration perspective should dominate the debate and linkages between internal and international migration will become more important.|

|Labour migration patterns among Central and Eastern European migrants||Prof. Dr. Godfried Engbersen, Faculty of the Social Sciences, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
Abstract I will present an empirically grounded typology of labour migration patterns among migrants from Central and Eastern Europe. This typology is based on two dimensions: attachment to the destination country on the one hand and attachment to the country of origin on the other. We conducted an empirical survey among labour migrants from Poland, Bulgaria and Romania in the Netherlands. We found four migration patterns in our data: (i) circular migrants (mostly seasonal workers) with weak attachments to the country of destination, (ii) bi-nationals with strong attachments to both the home country and the country of destination, (iii) footloose migrants with weak attachments to both the home and the destination country, and (iv) settlers with weak attachments to the home country. Our findings demonstrate the relevance of distinguishing different migration patterns for the debates on transnationalism and the integration of labour migrants from Central and Eastern Europe in Dutch society.
|Inside the Issues 2.19 - International Migration and Development||While international migration and development are oft-discussed topics in global governance, the nexus between the two receives far less attention. Not so for Jonathan Crush, the newly-appointed CIGI Chair in Global Migration and Development, our guest this week on Inside the Issues. He argues against the notion of economic development "stopping migration," saying that the relationship between flows of wealth and people are not so straight-forward in today's complex global arena.||197 views|
